Spend a semester or a full academic year studying in the UK and earn credits to transfer back to your home university.

Did you know that the United Kingdom is one of the most sought after study abroad destinations in the world, welcoming over 450,000 international students every year?

With a higher education system renowned for educational excellence and many of its universities at the forefront of global research, this is hardly surprising. Take a minute to search the top-ten universities on the planet – you’ll find 4 of them reside on UK soil.

The UK may be an island but it’s made up of four very different countries: England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales. Each of these countries has a strong national identity and each has its own unique history, language and landscapes.

From Buckingham Palace to Edinburgh Castle, Snowdonia National Park to the Giant’s Causeway, the UK has so many wonderful cities, attractions and outdoor spaces to explore while you are studying.
